So just a couple of days ago Gameloft decided to quit from the Android platform and said it was because they were not making any money. Now, it would appear, they had a change of hearth, or maybe someone was a little confused. I don’t know, the thing is, they are coming back.
Gameloft’s finance director Alexandre de Rochefort, said last time that they were significantly cutting their investment in Android platform, just like many others. And that the Android Market is not as neatly done as on the iPhone. But now, the company has posted a press release with the title “Gameloft Supports The 2nd Generation of Android Phones”.
Okay, so, were they cutting back on first generation Android phones the other day, or what the heck? I mean, de Rochefort also mentioned that Gameloft are selling 400 times more games on iPhone than on Android. And that on Android ‘nobody is making significant revenue’. So why the change of hearth? Now they will work for free?
Well, whatever it was, here’s the press release for your reading pleasure:
Gameloft Supports the 2nd Generation of Android Phones
Paris – Gameloft®, a world leader in the publishing and development of downloadable video games, plans to launch High Definition games on next generation Android phones like the Motorola Droid and the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10.
